This past weekend I’ve spent some time with family in Antigonish.
Life has sent a whirlwind my way and I feel like I’m staggering, grasping at any stable emotion. I rarely speak publicly about my personal life but I thought these photos need some context since they are outside what I normally share. Life is heavy right now but that’s how life can be sometimes. When it knocks you down, you still have to pick yourself back up.
I took a lot of photos this weekend and it seemed to be therapeutic for me. I looked at things around me differently, slowly taking in details and reminding myself to breathe. I’ve also been reading and writing a lot lately. Seems like different quotes and poems drift in and out of my head most of the day. This Mary Oliver poem comes to mind today.
it’s not the weight you carry
but how you carry it
books, bricks, grief
it’s all in the way you embrace it, balance it, carry it
when you cannot, and would not put it down
